Who cares!!! Legalize it and tax it... Alcohol is far worse! You don't go through weed sickness or withdrawals, but you do with alcohol and to all those fools who think that if you do weed you'll end up on crack is on crack to think that way!!

Legalize for prescribed medical use only yes, but how will that change anything for the normal user that they can't already do?

I just say legalize it for everyone and tax the hell out of it... No I don't use it nor do I drink... I'm just looking at the two and determining which one is worse and look at all the studies... Weed is far safer than alcohol. Another good thing is this... It would save the state millions because our police are used to hunt down crops , make busts, spend hours trying to convict the user/buyer/ seller and look at the prison systems... Were spending billions on this and we have locked up people for selling plants???? Come on... That makes no sense to me... We really need to make it legal!!!

You don't like driving 70 on the Interstate, drive 80. You don't like income tax, don't pay it. Don't have the money for those new shoes, take 'em and walk out. The point I'm making is that marijuana doesn't put people in jail. People go to jail for breaking CURRENT laws on the books. YOU work to change those laws YOU don't like, not break them and then whine, bitch, and cry about what YOU brought on YOURSELF.. Legalization won't be a rubber stamp item You will have limits on what you grow, what you sell. what you transport, and still be able to get a DUI for driving and getting fired at work for showing positive against company rules in a surprise random screen. It won't be anytime/anywhere/anyone/ or any amount that the stoners wish for..

There's not a single law, created by man, that isn't subject to change.

Would you like to see the 55 mpl re-imposed on the interstate?

Apparently little boy, you weren't around when that was imposed because of the nationwide gas shortage and rationing in the mid 70s. The "Double Nickel" didn't sit well with many motorists and especially truckers but they did finally realized that the Feds were serious when their repeated law breaking resulted in them losing their license to drive and insurance cancellation.

Watch your language, little boy. I remember that whole contived so called shortage. The whole thing was a staged act between the Rockefellers and OPEC.

The world needs more self- appointed watchdogs like you. The people on this forum are getting tired of your worn out rants. You intentionally confuse and over-complicate every thread on this subject for the express purpose of showing the world how smart you are.

And the people got the double nickle repealed. And it only took 20 years. Hence; subject to change.

The 55 mph was repealed when the oil shortage was over. It was so funny when travelers had their CB radios to warn of troopers ahead so they could open up and drive above the given limits, only to find that they were talking to a trooper who all had those radios too. BUSTED!!!!

R-E-P-E-A-L-E-D!!!!!!!

The 55mph was repealed because it was "subject to change". The people, with the support from Congress, got the law repealed and without loosing insurance or paying double premiums.

DUH??????????

Now who's missing the point

The oil shortage was a big fake. We weren't running out of oil then ,nor are we running out of oil now. My whole point was, that any law, created by man, is subject to change. You must find more sources than Wiki-pedia.

Believe what you want but you didn't have trucks sidelined for lack of fuel. We have the oil now and don't and shouldn't have to depend on foreign oil but tree huggers are convinced we should grind the country to a standstill instead of exploring new sources here in this country and Canada..

And you didn't have a radio that could listen to river boat pilots in the mid 70's running up and down the river looking for a port that would accept delivery of barge trains full of gasoline. Those were some mad pilots on the Missippii. It was very intertaining.

Laws (created by man) are subject to change. Inaliable rights of the individual are not.

You're trying to lake a left turn with the train again. Those who lost their license and insurance didn't automatically get them back after the speed limit was raised. They broke the laws in effect and keep their records and consequences.. Same as with MJ. As state change laws, the jail cells will not swing open for those who violated former drug laws as some people hope will happen.

We as nation and as a government can't set back and ignore the fact that 1.Tobacco has been legal for a long time and making money at a very costly price Americans health.It has ZERO medicinal purposes yet is regulated even though it destroys your health.
2.Alcohol has hardly any medicinal purposes yet is regulated even though again destroys families in countless ways.
So why is cannabis illegal?Bad PR coming out of prohibition.Then the hippie movement.Cannabis medicinal purposes also threatens pharmaceutical companies bottom line because they know when Cannabis is legalized in most states then their meds will be less needed.Cannabis is just now making a huge scene in medicinal uses and the legalization of recreational in Colorado.Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 60 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis.[4] It is a major constituent of the plant, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract, as a non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid.[5] CBD is considered to have a wider scope of medical applications than tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
